Ate here again last weekend. Had an excellent experience this time around. Service was perfect, right amount of time between ordering, eating etc. Food was fantastic. It's not cheap but it doesn't pretend to be. If you want a really good treat or you have the money to spend then this place is the only place to go. I cannot... More

Many of us had the fish, the Dublin Bay prawns were really nice and I had the cod with chorizo jam, it was very good. The scallops and monkfish was... More

This is a restaurant that I go to a couple of times a year. Last visit was in October 2016. The restaurant is always busy and booking is essential. We have always opted for fish at this restaurant but they have added a few meat dishes. Everything was first class and up to their usual high standard.

We were here in October for the first time - the restaurant itself, staff and food were AMAZING! This is the restaurant very near the Castle. We had such a great night and there was Irish Entertainment, turf fire, ever so friendly other guests that we didn't even know - can't say enough good things about this awesome experience. My...

We had a reservation but on arrival we were told by an unsmiling person, who didn't have a name that he cared to share, to... More

We went to Gallagher's for lunch today. The food was amazing. We shared mussels to start, which were delicious. They were served in a garlic cream sauce and although they were a starter, the portion was huge! We both had the seafood platter for main. It consisted of tempura prawns, calamari, smoked salmon , poached salmon and crabmeat. Each type... More

A few years ago, it was thriving, great atmosphere , table cloths , (although I did see a few times, the table cloths just being turned over and not changed!!!) was cosy and... More

Really nice bar and great food. Fresh tasting muscles and great specials . Would recommend a visit. Modern design of bar so not traditional Irish local but will certainly go again next trip.
